This powerhouse acid is focused on gently exfoliating dead skin, lightening hyperpigmentation and brightening skin. It works as a superb acne treatment without heavy skin irritation and is one of the best blackhead removing ingredients available in skincare. Glycolic acid can also soften fine lines and stimulate collagen production, leading to healthier skin growth. Made from fruit, milk, sugar cane or sugar beets, it has the smallest molecules of the AHA family which allows for deeper penetration in pores.
All AHAs or exfoliants can cause mild skin irritation like itching, redness and swelling so please peel responsibly and seek medical assistance if you do have a severe reaction.
